The low beam positive which it looks like powers the dash too ironically
just cooked out on my '09 and the fuse didn't last a second three in a row
while fiddling with connections. (The bike went flat out dead going down the highway.)
Coasted over with the clutch in. After I removed the tank and split the harness
open saw the melted and partially bare wire. Cut it at both ends and the bike
starts and works perfectly sans low beam and dash. Those are a simple rewire
then wrapping the harness back up the way it came, with electrical tape.
For a motorcycle it's really weird having a 28 wire bundle to begin with. The 08-09's
had some wire rubbing issues which were fixed at the factory or recalled (Mine got done)
Hope your problem is easy to trace and fix,
PS. Paul, crappy "joke". My friend hadda clutch cable snapped and the bolt cutters
were left by his motorcycle one fine evening back in the 80's. I had my plug wires pulled off,
the choke closed, and all switches n' petcock of my CB750 messed around
but nothing mechanically done to it I heard who did it after the fact and it was a fair
price for dropping a shot in his girl. LOL Better than getting beat up I guess. That was
long before gettin' God n' sobriety obviously.
